Mobile App Could Squash Health Care Costs

We are blown away by the innovative and thought-provoking  ideas filtering in through our 25K Gives Back Grant Contest.   Thank you to all nonprofits who have submitted so far!

It was tough for our team to select 1 spotlight entry with the influx of thoughtful ideas on how mobile marketing, mobile strategy and mobile technology can help their worthy causes.

But alas, we can only pick one spotlight each week and this week’s is Boston-based  Costs of Care.   Congratulations!

You can read their full entry overview with insight from independent judge Ephraim Gopin here.

“Medical bills are the leading cause of personal bankruptcy in the US.  Doctors are the ones who determine what tests and treatments go on these bills.” – Neel Shah, Costs of Care




Honorable Mention

We also wanted to highlight an additional organization, Cat Adoption Team (CAT), of Portland, OR for their entry.  The challenges they face in engaging younger generations are reminiscent of what many community-based organizations face today.

Embarking on a mobile strategy would help determine how CAT could best utilize mobile technology to grow their brand, gaining new clients, volunteers & advocates and creating more forever homes.  Since they, like many shelters, have an on-sight Veterinarian and other pet-specific services, a mobile solution could also bring in more revenue and make them more self-sustainable.

We want to hear from you!  How do you think mobile marketing and technology could deliver more smiles, educate more people or create healthier environments in your community?

Reach out on Twitter or better yet, tell us how our 25K mobile grant will help better more lives.

Questions & Answers

Are there differences in application architecture that are important for the cloud?
It is important to build applications and workloads specifically for the cloud. You will want to carefully consider what services the cloud provider of your choice has to offer and how your application leverages those services.
Learn More
Are there any drawbacks to cloud hosting?
Yes, there will always be some risks associated with any hosting option. You are relying on the resiliency and engineering of infrastructure that has scaled at an astounding rate.
Learn More
What’s the benefit of hosting in the cloud vs. traditional options?
Reasons not to host in the cloud are few and far between. If you don't host in the cloud, you will spend more in both CapEx and OpEx to manage your applications or websites in a traditional environment.
Learn More
How can I improve the performance of my application?
There are several primary reasons that applications perform poorly, and in some cases it’s a combination of several. 1) Data latency: If your application is making calls to a data source (whether it’s an API or a direct call) and there is latency at the data provider, your application performance will suffer.
Learn More
Should I move my application to the cloud?
The answer is ‘probably yes’. There aren’t many reasons for an application to be hosted elsewhere, aside from occasional compliance standards, or requirements to integrate with local services that would require large amounts of data to move from on-premise to cloud.
Learn More
Where should my application be hosted?
There are many different options for hosting, but most applications would do well with one of the cloud providers -- Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, Microsoft Azure.
